Labor Day brings a lot of concerts and events to Rome, it has been celebrated since 1880, when they were fighting for their rights. Farmers and other workers traditionally took the day off to eat, socialize and dance on May 1, until it was cancelled for about 20 years, but was back on track in 1945 with many other countries globally. Italians trade unions organized the big music events of first of may at San Giovanni Square. From early morning until late in the night, there will be performances of Italian and foreign artists.
